Looking for My dad's old 71 Mach 1
#1
My dad owned many different cars over the years.
But this one Mach was really nice and I always wondered if it was still out there.

I remember it being a Wimbledon White car with side stripes,
351-2v and auto trans.

I found some old paperwork on the car and would really like to connect with its current owner (if possible).

I realize this is a LONG SHOT but just thought I'd try.

The Oklahoma system requires a tag number and vin. Was it registered in Oklahoma? Do you know a cop buddy who could run the VIN for you?

Never made it to Florida in the last ~10 years or so, according to our DMV site.

Ray,
you should check with Kevin Marti to see if he still has the Lois Eminger report or if it has been sold, and if it has been sold, maybe he can point you in the right direction or at least maybe the right state it got sold to.
